hopeful and would expect that we would provide the emergency assistance needed for the victims of sandy, one of the country's worst storms in history that damaged the northeast so badly. so i am hopeful we will be able to move on both of these issues, and that we will have members on both sides who perhaps will not agree, but hopefully we will have members on both sides who will agree, and we can act as the american people expect us to do so. >> why don't we ask mr. van holland. >> thank you. i will be very brief. i think the difference between a divided government and dysfunctional government is the willingness to compromise. we saw that in the senate as leader paw -- leader pelosi and hoyer has said is looking at agreement and deciding it helps democrats and republicans and whether it helps move us forward. we are hopeful republicans on the house will do as democrats and republicans did on the senate and weigh all of the equities here, but decide at the end of the day that not everybody gets a hundred percent of what they want. democracy means a willingness to come together for the go
of superstorm sandy. this is how republican peter king responded this morning. >> john boehner has been personally helpful over the years, so it pains me to say this, but the fact is, the dismissive attitude that was shown last night towards new york, new jersey, connecticut, typifies, i believe, a strain in the republican party. we cannot believe that this cruel knife in the back was delivered to our region. >> now, unfortunately, these leaders will still need to work together, and soon. with one deadline down last night, the president has already begun positioning himself for the next fight. >> we'll negotiate over many things. i will not have another debate with this congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they've already racked up through the laws that they passed. let me repeat. we can't not pay bills that we've already incurred. >> the debt ceiling is coming, the sequesters are coming. cue the next countdown clock. joining us now from washington, the sage of capitol hill, hardest-working man in news business, nbc's luke russert. the first question i have to ask

and libya the third debate and sitting on it the last eight days of the campaign. after hurricane sandy hit the governor disappeared from the news cycle, apparently that was fine with him, he had many opportunities to speak with urgency in the the last weekend, but passed. so president obama's team run by the brilliant david axlerod won the fourth quarter big. they could point at voters who might support them and get them out on election day. the romney campaign made local appearances, saying the same thing over and over and over. early on election night when trends began to appear i said this, the changing country, the demographics are changing it's not a traditional america anymore and there are 50% of the voting public who want stuff. they want things. and who is going to give them things? president obama. he knows it, and he ran on it. >> bill: now, that's the truth. and there's no denying the statistics in exit polling. however some liberal americans were outraged that i would actually say the truth and i'll tell yu ou why in a moment. and eight days after, mitt romney held a conferenc
, we're going to vote on $60 billion for new york and area relief for hurricane sandy. that will consume a full year's worth of this tax increase that's proposed. >> let me just go back. it's so important, because we've had two years now of debates about all of this. each time we've only done spending cuts that hit middle class families and senior citizens the most. we are at a point where we're saying, no more. when congressman issa says everybody ought to be in and treated the same, that's fine. in the last decade we've seen wall street bailed out. we've seen more tax cuts for the wealthy while we have gone two wars and gone into debt. we have to right-size the ship. i support common sense spending cuts and voted for them. it's time for everybody to be all in. >> the debt is $16 trillion. >> there's no question about it. we've seen business people come together across the country saying they're willing to give a little more. the ceo of fedex said it's a washington myth that somehow ail loug the taxes to go back up to the clinton era time will impede growth. i mean, t
billion in assistance that the senate passed for victims of hurricane sandy. that's why you're seeing -- there you see republican from pennsylvania, likely his district was hit, but mostly new york and new jersey members, republicans and democrats going one after the other to the house floor really angry about this. doesn't necessarily mean they ultimately won't get the federal dollars but what it does mean is on thursday a new congress is sworn in. so the whole process of having to get this money through the system, through the senate and the house will have to start all over again. this appears to be a pretty direct casualty of this fiscal cliff deal. the reason is because we've been talking all night about republicans being angry about not enough spending cuts. this would have been $60 billion in new spending without any offsets. of course it would be emergency spend bing but new spending tha republicans clearly could not stomach passing. this information comes from the appropriations chairman hal rogers to our dierdre walsh. the republican governor from new jersey was here and oth
, which is going to have to be paid for. hurricane sandy relief, which is somewhere between 27 and $60 billion comes right behind it. that's newspaper new spending. the american people told us to deal with all of it. sure, we'd like lower taxes but republicans realize's that a lower tax that is only temporary because ultimately you're only borrowing the money is not lower tax. it's a tax defrl. when speaker pelosi and democrats were in charge, they used the word pay go constantly. in other words, is there an offsetting pay for what you do? president bush's tax cuts were not paid for. they were anticipated to be grown out of. these are not anticipated to be grown out of. cdo has said 3.967. in other words, $4 trillion will be added to the debt over ten years with this tax cut unless we do some spending cuts to help offset it. right now the president's still in a spending mood. we need to get him in a savings mood. >> i want to clarify, you said it was after the new year's and they were partying. are you suggesting that mitch mcconnell and fellow republicans in the senate were drunk when

sandy. that was a moment that changed the dynamic. changed the coverage of the race. allowed the president to elevate his presence and message and persona in the race in a way that i think cemented or solidified or at least contributed greatly to his victory. >> i disagree completely. i think it was the 47% video. when that emerged, i think that that really was what sort of calcified the image of mitt romney that the president's ads had been maintaining for months and i think it was very hard even with a poor debate performance from obama at first to come back from. >> in 1984 i knew mondale was going to lose when he gave his acceptance speech and said, the next president has to raise taxes. he won't tell you, i just did. this year i believed i knew that mitt romney was going to lose when he said, i will veto the d.r.e.a.m. act if it gets to my desk. when he said that in republican debate, i knew he couldn't get to 30% among latinos and i knew he was done. >> it sounds like an obvious answer but i think president obama's re-election will be seen by history as -- i think the w
